The food is poor, and that is being generous, it is way below a greasy spoon that would feature in a channel 4 documentary 'The worst takeaways in Britian'- in the toilet (next to the bowl) were stacked lettuces and other food and drink surrounded with rubbish. One of us ordered a salad and it came with Tuna - not wanted - the waitress who was very off hand brought the menu and explained that what we had ordered the salad which included the menu item above plus additional items, reading the menu closely it was in fact the case so we were partly at fault. At this point they looked at us with a shrug and said 'You ordered it, we don't care' no offer for a replacement at a slightly reduced rate or charging us slightly less for another dish. We tried to pay by card to be told 'Only cash' and to rub salt into the wound they charge extra for eating in the street.

The ambience was fantastic. The local and Continental food was great, specially the tropical salad and the Chicken sandwiches. The Local beer was erg tasty. The price was very reasonable. The restaurant is very close to the Saint Martin shopping centre and La Concha Beach.

Ordered a salad and was very disappointed at the taste and mostly upset that the lettuce was brown- clearly not fresh. Lot's of fruit flys flying around inside- not pleasant.

The breakfast is boring, and in a city like San Sebastian - avoid this type, there are amazing pintxos instead!! The service was cheeky, kept the change without offering it in return.
